Corrosion Management Technical Track:
Corrosion Policy – Policy Administrator’s Perspective of Service and Corporate Programs to Mitigate Corrosion of Fleets of Military Equipment as well as specific systems. Corrosion Prevention & Control Strategies – Describes Agency programs to manage, prevent or control corrosion using specific technologies (such as cathodic protection systems) Technology Transitions and Evaluations -1) Describes Practices & Testing of microscopic & macroscopic solutions for preventing or detecting corrosion; or 2) Reports of successful Products or Systems for extending the useful service life of Materiel and Military Structures Education, Training, and Fleet Support – Reports on ongoing successful educational courses and field training programs and/or Fleet Support activities to mitigate corrosion degradation during in-service use in specific corrosive environments System Engineering Management – Reports on system-level approaches to mitigate corrosion and may include the application life cycle cost approaches, business case analyses, lessons learned from the field, and failure analyses.
Corrosion Science Technical Track:
Corrosion Modeling – Analytic/Computational Modeling a) of the generic phenomenologically specific corrosion phenomena/ mechanism (across all size scales including: atomic, nano, microscopic, macroscopic and even for components and materiel systems) or b) for a materials specific system or alloy class Corrosion Fundamentals – Identifying critical atomic and/or microscopic scale phenomena that might then subsequently be used to mitigate specific corrosion mechanisms Corrosion Inhibitors – Reports on the discovery and use of specific/generic corrosion inhibitor species to reduce or mitigate specific corrosion degradation mechanisms
Corrosion Technology Technical Track:
Accelerated & Outdoor Exposure Testing – Quantification of corrosion degradation of metallic and coated samples and materiel components using accelerated and outdoor exposure protocols Corrosion Monitoring & Assessment – Covers Systems and Methodologies directed at detecting, monitoring and assessing corrosion phenomena under both laboratory and in- service environments Corrosion Sensors – Use of sensors to monitor basic corrosion phenomena as well as ruggedized sensor packages to determine the progress of Corrosion Degradation of components and entire materiel (weapons platforms and structures) systems exposed to fielded in-service environments Paints & Coatings I – Primers – Reports on conventional and novel primers demonstrating enhanced performance and durability in specific corrosive environments Paints & Coatings II – Systems – Reports on conventional and novel paint systems intended to have enhanced performance and durability in specific corrosive environments Paints & Coatings III – Specialty Coatings – Reports on novel specialty or non-traditional coating systems intended to have enhanced performance and durability in specific corrosive environments Surface Preparation & Pretreatments – Reports on novel Surface Preparations or Pretreatments on original or stripped surfaces and/or the development of novel (e.g. hex chrome free) solutions for mitigating corrosion
Corrosion Resistant Materials Technical Track:
Corrosion Resistant Metallic Materials – Reports on the use of specific metallic alloys to mitigate corrosion in specific corrosive environments Corrosion Resistant Ceramics, Polymeric Materials and Composites – Reports on the use of specific ceramic, polymeric materials, or composites to mitigate corrosion in specific corrosive environments
Materials and Coatings for Facilities & Infrastructure Technical Track:
Materials for Facilities & Infrastructure – Reports on novel, composite or advanced materials solutions for more durable F&I applications in specific service environments Protective Treatments and Coatings for Facilities & Infrastructure – Reports on novel or advanced treatments and coatings that produce more durable solutions for extending the service life of F&I components or systems in specific service environments
Full technical papers are required in order to make presentations in the technical sessions. The papers and presentations are peer reviewed to ensure high technical quality and to avoid commercialism.
3.2 Student Research in Progress Symposium (SRiP)
The SRiP is intended to encourage graduate and undergraduate students interested in becoming professional Corrosion scientists, engineers or technologists the opportunity to present ongoing research. Extended abstracts, as opposed to full technical papers, are required in order to participate and present in the SRiP.
3.3 Student Poster Session (SPS)
High school, undergraduate, and graduate students from recognized academic institutions are eligible to participate in the Student Poster Session (SPS).
There are three categories for Student Posters:
1. Milton Levy Category for Corrosion Science – Research in the area of a fundamental understanding of corrosion phenomena applicable to systems of DoD interest.
2. Robert J. Ferrara Category for Corrosion Engineering – Research in the area of practical application of corrosion science to corrosion prevention, detection or control of systems of DoD interest.
3. Richard (Dick) Kinzie Category for Applied Corrosion Technology – Research into the development of tools, techniques, or systems that can be utilized for corrosion prevention, detection or control of systems of DoD interest. The Student Posters Session (SPS) Chair determines which posters will be presented based on abstracts submitted by the students. The schedule for the SPS should be developed in such a way as to maximize exposure of the posters and the students to Conference attendees. Past Conferences have accomplished this by having the posters set up in the Exhibit Hall on Monday prior to the opening of the Exhibit Hall. Judging has occurred on Monday evening (during the opening of the exhibits) and Tuesday during lunch. Posters have been taken down Wednesday evening.
Papers will be Accepted or Rejected by January 10th, 2017Submit Abstract
